Overview

Visit Atomic bomb dome and try Hiroshima's local specialty on Miyajima Shrine island.
First, we take a local train and ferry to Miyajima island and have lunch. In the afternoon, we go back to downtown Hiroshima and visit atomic bomb dome, ground zero, some monuments in the peace park and peace museum. I am flexible to customize my tour based on your request. Please feel free to contact me.

What to Expect

Hiroshima is world famous for the atomic bomb dome but you can't miss Miyajima!
Explore Miyajima shrine island, Japan's top 3 most scenic location. You will be greeted by wild deer there. 800 year-old Itsukushima shrine and its giant gate are very unique ones standing in the bay.
What you can enjoy on the island is not only seeing but also eating. Why don't you try Hiroshima's local specialty, Okonomi-yaki? Egg, cabbage, pork, bean sprouts are cooked on a hot iron plate and put together like a layered pancake (please see my phogo gallary).
The other destination is the atomic bomb dome and peace museum. Hiroshima is the first city that suffered from the atomic bombing. Seeing and knowing what happened in Hiroshima gives us a good chance to think about our future, to share one world with love and peace.

“ 5 Star tour guide ”

I feel my choice of guide could not be any better and more connected to me . An immediate and moving journey through tradition ,religion, war, destruction and commitment to peace for the world. Thank you Keiko for sharing. Hey and yes...the best Okonomiyaki in the world is in Hiroshima

Keiko:

Thank you Suzi, I loved all the conversation with you. I felt as if we had met before! And also thank you for your comment about okonomi-yaki. You ate the best one in the world :)

“ Great day out ”

Keiko was friendly and knowledgeable, and we really enjoyed our time on Miyajima island and in Hiroshima city with her. Funny but important tip , she advised us the deer on Miyajima island like eating paper so to keep our JR rail passes in a safe place . We then witness a tourist trying to wrestle for her pass back from a deer who had it firmly in its mouth ! Going to Ground zero where the A Bomb exploded and the Peace museum were also highlights

Keiko:

Thank you Rachel, the scenery where a traveler was wrestling for her JR pass , which is the most important thing besides her life and passport, was a highlight for me, too. Yes, it was a fun day. I had a great day, too, Thank you again, Rachel!

“ Best Tour Guide in Japan! ”

Keiko spoke excellent English. She has a great sense of humor. She planned a perfect itinerary for us. We saw a lot but weren’t rushed from place to place. We enjoyed lunch at a local restaurant that tourists and large tour groups would never find. We spent a wonderful day with Keiko and highly recommend her without any reservations.

Keiko:

Thank you Cynthia, the tour with you was full of fun and I'm glad you enjoyed my tour. I hope our path will cross again someday in this small world!

“ Very pleasant and comfortable. Highly informative. ”

Keiko was very knowledgeable, accommodating with excellent English that made the tour interesting, highly educational with many facts that would have skipped us if we had done the tour on our own. She was solicitous of us considering our limitations with regards long walks.

Keiko:

Thank you Marie. Sharing our opinions and talking about our different cultures & history are always exciting moments for me, too. And I believe this experience will be a small piece of a better world. It was a wonderful day for me, too. Thank you again, Marie!

“ Keiko is Terrific! ”

Keiko is terrific! She is friendly, knowledgeable, efficient and speaks excellent English (ask her about “15” v “50”). She took us to the Peace Memorial area and Miyajima island and made sure we saw all the key important aspects. She shared information on local life and culture. And she is a huge Hiroshima Carp baseball fan!

Keiko:

Thank you, Betty. It was a wonderful day and I enjoyed all the conversation with you all. I’m glad that we shared our opinion, culture, baseball info, and many other things. We made a flower of peace bloom!
